Resurrection of the Shroud New Scientific, Medical, and Archeological Evidence

Resurrection of the Shroud New Scientific, Medical, and Archeological Evidence

Author: Mark Antonacci Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/08/2001

August 2000 marked an unusual event in history: the new millennium's first public exhibition of the Holy Shroud of Turin. Only the fifth exhibition since 1898 and commemorating the Jubilee anniversary of the birth of Jesus, the event in Italy attracted millions of people world-wide. In this book Mark Antonacci scientifically challenges earlier radiocarbon testing and presents new evidence in determining the Shroud's true age. In addition, he provides the first scientific explanation and demonstration of the cause of the image of the man on the Shroud. Despite centuries of efforts from people of different backgrounds throughout the world, this extraordinary image has never been adequately explained -- until now. Based on extensive research of both the author's twenty years of analysis and the findings of scientists commissioned by the author, this work provides scientific and concrete evidence that The Shroud of Turin was indeed used to wrap the body of the historical Jesus Christ.
